Hocus Pocus w/Really Reasonable Ribbon

Are you all ready for the little goblins who will be knocking on your door saying, "Trick or Treat" in a few weeks?  Well, if you're making any Halloween cards (or any cards for that matter), then you're sure to find the perfect ribbons, trims and twines (among oodles of other wonderful things) at Really Reasonable Ribbon to help adorn your cards and projects.'ll find oodles of great sentiments for your cards at Bonnie Garby Designs.
This card has a basic black cardstock base layered with some Halloween patterned papers from my stash.  I cut half a small doily from another patterned paper using a Papertrey Ink die.  The ghosts are Jolees stickers from my stash.  The fun sentiment (Hocus Pocus) is from Bonnie Garby Designs and it comes in the Spooky Halloween Bundle.
I wrapped a length of Orange Seam Binding around the bottom of the card and tied a bow with the Orange Seam Binding, Black Seam Binding and a length of Green Apple Baker's Twine.  I tucked in a few Double Head Stamens and topped it all with a pretty Orange Open Rose.  In the upper right-hand corner, I attached a black & white Gingham Fabric Covered Flatback Button.  Pretty much everything was attached using Scor-Tape.
You're always guaranteed to find the PERFECT ribbon, trim, twine and everything spooled at Really Reasonable Ribbon in addition to all their fabulous Adhesives, Flowers, Hair Accessories and SO much more.  You'll also find loads of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so please stop by often.  We always enjoy your visits.

Two Old Bats Challenge - October:  Anything Goes Halloween

Inspiration Station Challenge Blog - October: Halloween - This inspiration photo is SO cute.  I was inspired by the colors and the FUN that's expressed in their faces.  I hope I captured a bit of the "fun" in my card.

As You Like It Challenge Blog - Halloween or Fairies?  I choose Halloween over fairies because I don't believe in fairies (they're not real) and I don't have any fairy images.  They're just not my thing.  I do, however, enjoy cute little Halloween images.
